Well it has been about 2 months since my last post on my Bismarck Palm Tree ( Bismarckia nobilis ) that I scored at the Farmers Market. Click Here to see the first set of pictures for comparison, it was pretty bad. I figured it was time for an update.

Since my last post I have re-potted my Bismarck Palm Tree into a decorative pot that I scored from Wal-Mart for $10.00 that is made from 100% recycled material. I mulched the top and placed it near my table area. The man I bought the Bismarck Palm from had a well sprinkler system which turned the fronds a copper color from deposits in the water. Now there is new growth and you can see the beautiful blue color in the frond. This is the attractive color I have been waiting for. Soon all of the fronds will be this color and it will look amazing.

While you are looking, in the first picture you can see my Silver Dollar Gum Tree ( Eucalyptus cinerea). It is also doing very well. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

I love anything blue but especially blue-leaved plants in my garden. They seem to cool off the bright colors of the flowers and contrast well with the ever-present green once the flowers are done blooming. I'm glad your palm is recovering from the rusty water staining.
